Attempt -- limit number of attempts for randomCurveP1P2


When randomCurveP1P2 generates a random curve in $\PP^3$ using the SpaceCurves package, it is possible the resulting curve will intersect the base loci of the projections used to construct the curve in $\PP^1\times\PP^2$. If the curve does intersect the base locusi it will generate a new random curve in $\PP^3$. The option Attempt limits the number of attempts to find a curve disjoint from the base loci before quitting. By default, Attempt is set to 1000.
